Innova, Actron or other OBD2 Scanner

Hi

I am looking for an OBD2 scanner that can read live-data (with engine running) for trouble shooting purposes. I am too poor to afford the SD2 from Ferrari. Has anybody found a decent one (<$500) that works?

The innova 3100/3200 series did not talk to the car in engine running mode (even though it is designed to). The Innova tech thinks it is Ferrari locking them out.

Check out OBD2 "All in One" and the Digimoto software. You will need a laptop to run it.
Nice setup for much less than $500, below is the link ...

What car? My AutoXray 6000 works just fine for OBDII stuff on 96 and newer cars.

Some 355s are missing a ground in the underdash connector that causes a problem with aftermarket scanners.

There are threads devoted to fixing the problem. It involves adding a terminal and I believe Ferrari supplied a kit for it.

I've never encountered a car that didn't talk to the scan tool.

I would recommend something from here: http://www.scantool.net/
I have the old ElmScan5 Bluetooth version and it works great for real time data. I will attach a sample. I am not affiliated with this company in any way.

The ground cable is there on pin 4 and 5. The Innova talks to the car only when engine is not running. WHen it runs, the comm link drops off and cannot reconnect.

Before I launch down this path, can you confirm that you 355 will talk easily with this tool while the car is running (I can see the graphs).

Yes, the 355 talks easily with this tool. With the bluetooth or wifi version, you can just leave it plugged in since there are no cables hanging down. There are some apps that can run on smart phones that will read the data, so you can monitor it real time while you are driving. You can also use the ScanXL software package on your PC for more in depth data collection and analysis. The graph that I attached was captured on my laptop.
